growing up,
growing older
some get smarter
others bolder
i don’t want to let go
i don’t want to let go
of being right here.

moving on,
moving up
leaving old lives
for something “better”
i don’t want to change
i don’t want to change
being right here.

left alone,
left alone
not leaving
not moving
i’m still not changing
i’m still not changing
being right here.

you all move on,
you all move up
ready to grow up
and get out
leaving me alone,
leaving me alone
right here.

I absolutely love this! It speaks to by heart, though I can't pin point a reason.
-Blessed Be!
